Remote Spectrum Monitorâ„¢ MS27201A Programming Manual : SCPI Error Table
 
SCPI Error Table
This section lists the error code/messages returned from the device when an error occurs during the execution of the SCPI command.
Error messages are classified by error number as listed in table below.
Error Number
Error String
Description
11
EEPROM read/write error
EEPROM read and/or write failed
10
Hardware communication error
Failed to communicate with device hardware.
2
Option mismatch
Operation failed due to option mismatch.
1
Model mismatch
Operation failed due to option mismatch.
0
No error
The queue is completely empty. Every error/event in the queue has been read or the queue was purposely cleared by power-on, *CLS, etc.
-100
Command error
Command error
-101
Invalid character
A syntactic element contains a character which is invalid for that type.
-102
Syntax error
An unrecognized command or data type was encountered.
-103
Invalid separator
The parser was expecting a separator and encountered an illegal character.
-104
Data type error
The parser recognized a data element different than one allowed.
-108
Parameter not allowed
More parameters were received than expected for the header.
-109
Missing parameter
Fewer parameters were received than required for the header.
-110
Command header error
An error was detected in the header.
-120
Numeric data error
Error is generated when parsing a data element which appears to be numeric, including the non-decimal numeric types.
-121
Invalid character in number
An invalid character for the data type being parsed was encountered.
-123
Exponent too large
The magnitude of the exponent was larger than 32000.
-124
Too many digits
The mantissa of a decimal numeric data element contained more than 255 digits excluding leading zeros.
-131
Invalid suffix
The suffix does not follow the syntax or suffix is inappropriate for this device.
-141
Invalid character data
Either the character data element contains an invalid character or the particular element received is not valid for the header.
-160
Block data error
Error is generated when parsing a block data element.
-171
Invalid Expression
The expression data element was invalid; for example, unmatched parentheses or an illegal character.
-200
Execution error
Execution error
-213
Init ignored
Indicates that a request for a measurement initiation was ignored as another measurement was already in progress.
-221
Settings Conflict
The processed parameter could not be set due to the current device state.
-222
Data Out of Range
The processed parameter is outside of the instrument's defined range.
-224
Illegal parameter value
Indicates that an exact value, from a list of possibles, was expected.
-230
Invalid trace data
Data corrupt or stale
-233
Invalid version
Indicates that the version does not match the version expected by the device.
-251
Missing mass storage
Indicates that a legal program command or query could not be executed because of missing mass storage.
-256
File name not found
Indicates that a legal program command or query could not be executed because the file name on the device was not found.
-300
Device-specific error
Device-specific error
-340
Calibration Failed
Calibration Failed
-350
Queue overflow
A specific code entered into the queue in lieu of the code that caused the error. This code indicates that there is no room in the queue and an error occurred but was not recorded.
-363
Input buffer overrun
Software or hardware input buffer on incoming port overflows with data caused by improper or nonexistent pacing.
-400
Query error
